they are lying? >> yes. i think the president of the united states has lied to the american people but i think he may be lying to himself. i think this president is so totally one-sided in his view of islam, he is so misinformed. he is so willfully ignorant, if you look at his cairo speech that was filled with factual errors. this is a president who simply can't face reality when it comes to people who wanted to kill us. when i see bear bearians -- barbarians torturing an american ambassador, i found those scenes horrifying and i think every american should be enraged. i don't want the commander in chief apologizing and talking about some stupid movie. america has the right to be a free country. america stands for freedom. we should be standing up around the world telling these people, we're not going to give in to you. we are prepared to meet your violence with whatever effort takes. we should hunt every one of them down. >> sean: i would really like to know -- what is the president going to do about it? now we are spending $70,000 on an ad in pakistan that shows our secretary of state, our pres
united states senators, a big majority democratic majority in the house. they could do anything they wanted to without republican help, and they did. the stimulus was supposed to have us at 6% unemployment. it has been a flop. it grew the government, hasn't create jobs. obama care was supposed to lower premiums for everybody. this $2,200 per person higher, and people were not -- guess what, they're losing six million or seven million people that have been displaced. they promised to reduce the deficit in half in its first term. this went up by 51%. this is why mitt romney is in good shape. during the debates, we're about to focus on four years of barack obama, not everything just about what mitt romney may have said or puts his dog on the car. >> it is true that this president campaigned more than any other, although they all campaign on let's change washington because everybody hates washington, but this president, more than any other, has been one that said i'm going to go in there, and i'm iffing to change washington, hope and change, hope and change, and now he says, you kno

yet regarding this announcement by the united states, but earlier we heard from senior government officials, the prime minister -- the former prime minister now of libya and the speaker of parliament holding a press conference. strong condemnation of the attack vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice and the speaker of the parliament saying this attack coincided with september 11th, that they believe there is a link there, hinting that this was carried out by the islamist extremist groups that operate in eastern libya and saying that libya will not allow that its land be used by these groups to carry out what he described as revenge attacks against the west. at the same time saying that they will need the help of the international community in confronting these groups. people here, anderson, really shocked by what happened. many libyans i've spoken to are really saddened by this attack and hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice. >> jill, the state department, we saw secretary of state clinton condemning the attacks. cnn has confirmed it was a planned attack. the att
in and see him. him is the president of the united states. he's very much a junior partner. that is the new vice presidency. and that's what's really changed. it began under mondale and was that way to our country -- well, it wasn't so useful under cheney but i think now the vice president is a junior partner. he's explained to barack obama. looking up to him as a smarter guy, perhaps a tougher guy. but certainly with great loyalty. >> ed shultz, we're leading up to the president's speech. what are your impressions there? >> he was trying really hard tonight. he was trying to get as emotionally connected to the audience as he possibly could. it wasn't his smoothest performance, but it was effective. you could tell the crowd was involved. they know this man. they know what he's about. he's a genuine guy. high on sincerity, believable. i thought it was good testimony to the president. >> chris? >> i don't think we've seen that pitch of the president so far. the idea that it's about his judgment and what's in his gut and this kind of undescribable part of his being that can make the right call
have been killed in north africa by extremist groups, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible? >> we always have to be careful repeating what we're told in classified settings, but basically, we were told something that goes along with its consistent with what the administration was saying publicly an that was that was a upon tan yous mob, got out of hand and there wasn't consequenc consequences. doesn't make much sense if you look at common sense. the fact it was 9/11. the fact it was a highly organized attack. that's before you get into the evidence it just didn't really add up. >

the race there, really. and that underdogs usually get on the stage with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basicsly broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this coul

of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> and the president is on the case and sent two u.s. warships to the libyan coast and marines into tripoli and the fbi has opened an investigation into the attack that killed those four americans. contrast that with what mitt romney did today, campaigning in virginia. let's listen to him. >> as we watch the world today, sometimes it seems that we're at the mercy of events instead of shaping events and a strong america is to shape events and a strong america, by the way, depends on a strong military. this president has done something i find very hard to understand. ever since fdr, we've had the capacity to be engaged in two conflicts at once and he's saying, no, we're going to cut that back to only one conflict. >> joe klein, thank you. because you have a big picture look of this. what is mitt romney talking about that is relevant to aur our ability to deal with the group of militants in a place like benghazi that go against the embassy or going against the embassy and ambassadors of the embassy itself in care iro, be egypt. >>
president obama. >> well, president obama has been the president of the united states for the last four years and the best training to be the president of the united states is to be successfully the president of the united states, which he has been. >> then we should always do away with the second term and say, let's go on for eight years. do you agree that fundament fundamentally -- >> no. we wouldn't have these unemployment numbers and now 360,000 people have given up and if they stayed in the workforce we would have 8.4 unemployment and 47 million people on food stamps and heading for the largest rate of poverty in the last 50 years. household income is down $4,000 and how can anyone say that we are better off, and by the way, a number not talked about enough is the deficit is 7.6%. that is equal to greece. we have a deficit the same as greece. >> so taking that deficit number, and letting me put some other figures up for the audience. in the economy right now, and gas prices are high. we are $16 trillion in debt, and there is, there are 43 months of unemployment over 8%. how do you
